Xiaomi is reportedly working on the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 that will come out to replace the Mi Max 2 phablet from last year. Recent reports have revealed that the Mi Max 3 will be sporting a full screen design. This means that the dimensions of the Mi Max 3 would be similar to that of its predecessor model. However, it may sport a larger screen by reducing the upper and lower bezels. Today, two leaked images of the alleged Mi Max 3 have appeared to reveal its front and top view.
From the above image, it is difficult to guess whether it features reduced bezels. However, the device seems to be a bit elongated which hints that it may be packed with an 18:9 aspect ratio display. The placement of the selfie camera, earpiece and the sensor are similar to the Mi Max 2.
The IR blaster and 3.5mm audio jack are placed on the top edge of the Mi Max 2. However, the topside of the alleged Mi Max 3 only features an IR blaster. This indicates that the 3.5mm audio jack could be either placed on the bottom edge of the phablet or the company may have removed the feature from it. If the latter is true, the USB-C port could be used for connecting earphones.
Previous reports have claimed that the Mi Max 3 would be featuring a 6.99-inch display. It is speculated that the smartphone could be driven by either Snapdragon 630 or Snapdragon 660 chipset. Some sources have also claimed that the Mi Max 3 will be arriving with dual rear cameras. The Mi Max 3 is likely to house a mammoth battery of 5,500mAh battery and the phablet is expected to carry support for Quick Charge 3.0. It could be available in variants like 3 GB RAM + 64 GB storage and 4 GB RAM + 129 GB storage. It is speculated that these models could be available with respective pricing of 1,499 Yuan (~$236) and 1,599 Yuan (~$252).
